Thursday, 11:50–1:15, Apr. 12
Instructor: Ray Beery
This talk presents one facet of the Loudoun theme for this term: France. The Paris Climate Accord of 2015 is the latest in a long line of diplomatic conferences held in Paris during modern times. The City of Light is, like Geneva and Vienna, a city widely regarded as a truly international center. We will focus on just three meetings: the Treaty of Paris in 1783 that laid out the terms of independence for the United States, the Paris Peace Conference of 1919 that structured the post-war world, and the recent Climate Accord.
